Marie Booth Riisaell, who, aa leading 
woman for Robert Mantell, adds Immensely 
to the success of the atar, contributed, a few 
days ago, two Stetson anecdotes to the al- 
ready large collection concerning this the- 
atrical manager's unique personality. 

Stetson'* well known ambition was always 
lo hnve bis productions the best, the biggest, 
no matter what ll cost. If rivals came out 
with something a little ahead of what he 
was doing. It didn't take him long to get out 
something else quite beyond their attempts. 

The productions ut tbe rival theatre, op- 
posite the Globe, were a continual spur to 
Stetson's ambition. During a certain holiday 
season which Alias Russell recalls, tbe pro- 
duction was to be made on a most magnifi- 
cent acale, so as to outshine the production 
of the »ame character across the street 
Transformation *Dd other gorgeous acenes 
to the number of sixteen were ordered, and 
Stcteon'B scenic artist was glren fall awing, 
with bo curtailing of expense to hamper bis 
Imagination. 

The time came for a rehearsal of this 
part of tbe production, and Stetson, with 
the whole company and a coterie of crltlca, 
sat out feont, as tbe wonderful pieces of 
stage mechanism and scenery were set up, 
shifted and struck. Aa the last piece of 
spectacular handiwork was disposed of, the 
artist, who had been given oartt blanche for 
lis construction, advanced from the wings 
towards the front of the stage. 

"How Is It?" he said, addreislng the big 
manager, who si.111 sat In contemplative 
silence. 

"It's all right as far as It goes," said 
Stetson. 

"As far as It goes !" repeated tbe disap- 
pointed artist, who had expected unstinted 
praise for his work.- "How much further 
could I go?" 

"There ain't no snow scene !" replied the 
manager. 
. "tiuoio scene I'" gasped the artist, "of 
course not. All the scenes of this production 
lay In tbe tropic*, and had to be tropical in 
character, of course." 

"Oh, -!" exclaimed Stetson, "what's 

the use of a spectacular production without 
n h big snow scene — Icebergs, Polar bean. 
Icicles, ships being wrecked on the Icebergs, 
and all that." 

"But tola la a trap " began the 

scenery builder. 

"Look here, yuung man," Interrupted tbe 
manager, "you've got Just three days before 
tbe opening to tlx things up. I know what 

1 want, and I'm the one that pays for what 
lie wants. You Just gut to work and build 
tbe handsomest tropical snow scene ever 
shown on any stage !"

MUs Russell's second Stetson story re- 
called the time when the literary preBs agent 
{at this period omnipresent) first cams to 
he known. ' This special form of theatrical 
advertising was employed by few at that 
time, and being the latest and most proper 
thing. Manager Stetson, of course, added U 
to his regime of theatrical tactics. 

To clever Lewis Sharp was entrusted this 
position, and at that time bright adver- 
tising and the name Sharp were synonymous 
terms. ' Sharp's clever pen work was evi- 
denced everywhere, and sometimes his name 
appeared somewhat to overshadow that of 
the Globe's proprietor. Tbe letter's notice 
of the fact wus shown by an amusing In- 
cident. 

On matinee days the sldewulk In front of 
tbe thentre was adorned by a big while and 
gold, two aided, standing Blgn, bearing the 
notice, "Usual Mntlnce. 2.1IS o'clock." Dur- 
ing the production of an unusually long 
play It was thought best to begin the matinee 
earlier, and so thnt tbe general public should 
be apprised of this fact, Sharp had another 
sign painted, which rend, "Matinee To-day, 

2 Sharp." 

"Look hero ." exclaimed Stetson, whose 
eye, a few minutes Inter, caught sight of the 
nnnouncement In front of the theatre, then 
turning to one of his staff who stood near 
by, added: 

' "I wont you to hurry back and get the 
painter to change thnt sign. There's gcttlug 
to he altogether too muth Sluirp around this 
place. M11 1 hi w>, £ Sharp?" repeated he, 
deeply under hla breath- "Von just get that 
painter to put 011 that hoard, 'Matinee To-day 
at 2, Btcttunl' " 



Hubert Mantell recalls an Incident of his 
early youth which, at that time, convinced 
him that ministers of the goBpel were not all 
Much godly folk as he had been taught to 
believe. 

This great nctor was born In n Scottish 
town, called Irvine, in Ayershlre. When he 
was about six years at nge his father moved 
the family to Belfast, Ireland. A tew years 
Inter, as ■ boy of twelve, he mcoropnuled 
the' elder Manlell back to Scotland on a 
visit to the old home at Irvine. Ills father. 
who was a strictly religious man. took the 
youngster with him on the Sabbath to the 
old kirk where he hud fur bo many years 
listened weekly to the preaching. 

To tbe great disappointment of Ms nt ell's 
father, the pulpit on this dny was occupied 
by a visiting minister, as the resident clergy* 
man had been called elsewhere. As soon, 
however, ns the big. stalwart, seven-foot 
preacher began to pour forth his eloquence 
In expounding tho text of the dny, the elder 
Mantell forgot hla disappointment and lis- 
tened eagerly. So pleased wag he that at 
the end of the services he approached tbe 



orator-preacher with the Intention of thank- 
ing him for tbe pleasure received. 

"You save in a graod sermon/' said 
Mantell senior, "and I want to thank you 
personally for It." 

"Why, toon," deprecatlngly replied the 
minister, "my preaching to Hay was nothing I 
You ought to hear me when I'm half drunk!"

So many stories concerning tbe early Ufa 
of William A. Brady are extant, that another, 
vouched for by Mr, Donagbey to be the 
real truth (to the exclusion of tbe others), 
is now repeated. The one, purporting bis 
start In life as a vendor of peanuts, la par- 
tially true, for, as train-boy, be worked 
part of bis passage to the California coast, 
where be went Into tbe* profession, putting 
his forceful foot on the lowest round of the 
theatrical ladder. 

Many of tbe stories placing his origin as 
extremely lowly, are to be doubted, as tbe 
elder Brady was one of the clever writers 
of hla time, and) an authority In his especial 
line of literary work — that pertaining to 
Catholic publications. 

Contrary to the wishes and Intention of 
tbe family. Brady, in hla early youth, took 
It Into bis head to be the arbiter of bis own 
fate and the carver of bis own fortunes, in 
pursuance of which be decided to go West 
to California, lie lad to get there the best 
way he could, and the peanut-selling was 
but an episode of his march to subsequent 
money and fame. 

Young Brady's ambition waa to be a great 
actor, and he had made Ms way behind the 
scenes at every opportunity, thus acquiring 
at least a sight of the Inside of the things 
for which bis youug heart yearned. On 
arriving In San Francisco he Immediately 
applied for a theatrical position. When 
asked by Hartley Campbell what he could do, 
lie managed to Imply that he could play 
parts of all sorts, and as the big manager 
needed Just such a person to fill the place 
of the »ne who was 111 and out of the cast, 
llrody was engaged at *7C per week. 

Max Freeman, who had Just arrived from 
tbe East to manage the stage for Campbell, 
»aw the boy In conversation with his chief, 
and upon Inquiring what be waa doing there, 
was Informed that he waa tbe new man just 
engaged to fill Blank's place, whereupon 
Campbell was Informed that the young 
fellow was only a peanut vendor aboard 
the train that bad brought them both to the 
coast. Of course, on his arrival for duty 
tbe next day, Brady was called to account, 
and accused of deception regarding his stand- 
ing In the theatrical profession. His 1 earnest 
defense of hla action and bis quick wit, 
together with the expression of bis youthful 
enthusiasm, prevailed with the manager 
tlnnlly, and Instead of $75 per week, be was 
engaged as call boy at $7.00. But be always 
"had It In" for that clever actor and stage 
director, Freeman, who had "given him 
away" to Campbell, and, as he believed, lost 
him a good Job. 

However, be. with extraordinary quick- 
ness, acquired so much knowledge of the 
stage that he was soon made' assistant man- 
ager, and on some occasions, when Freeman 
was HI, he took tbe whole work upon hla 
young shoulders, with the assurance and 
authority of a veteran In the work. 

It wsa good gran tiding for Brady there, 
for be ?nme In contact with tbe heat and 
greatest In the business at the very start of 
bis theatrical career, 



Marie llllngton will resume their old parts, 
it Is proposed to follow "The Bondman" 
with "Tbe Prodigal Hon," the orlglnsl run 
of which was also cut short by pantomime 
preparations. 

Charles Wynflhani v.as recently Inter- 
viewed on the subject of hla retirement from 
the stage. He said: "When 1 do flnsllv re- 
tire from tbe atage I shall not herald It 
with a farewell performance. We are some- 
times blamed for breaking our word aboat 
retiring, but the reatlessness that ofttlmes 
comes with Inactivity drives us back. I 
think, however, that the time has come when 
I may think of taking a long bolldsy, but 
although that will not be before next Octo- 
ber, 1 shall not defer It beyond two years. 
Of plans 1 have none. I will not In this 
matter of leaving tbe atage. lock the door 
and throw away tbe key. 1 will not make 
myself a prisoner. Next year I shall do one 
new play, probably at Easter, and revive 
some old favorites. After thst 1 can speak 
more definitely. Rehearsing a new play Is 
to me no labor. It Is less exacting, strange 
as It may seem to you. than appearing In 
public. I love It. My pleasure in that work 
la so great that I have often rehearsed a 
piece in which I have no direct Interest. 
The developments of Idea ond characer are 
pleasant to follow them In order. When I 
retire fron tbe stage I may at least have 
that resource."

Dec. 15. 

After n fortnight's run,. "Julie Bon Bon" 
was played for the last time at the Waldorf 
last Saturday night. Mr. Mann, Miss Lip- 
man and other members of the cast sailed 
for home on Wednesday. .1 understand 
the show hns closed for tbe season. Be- 
fore leaving, Mr. Mann, in oh Interview, 
Bold: "We are both very sorry to go, for 
we have made dear friends. We think that 
some of those who came to tbe Aral night 
performance were unnecessarily unkind. 1 
ndmlt that tbe representation was not as 
good as It has been nli.ee, but on tbe first 
night we had a cold, unresponsive audience. 
We might as well have been playing to a stone 
wall. 1 think people forget that a captious 
audience kills the actor's art. We will try 
again, however. We have determined to 
come back hero. We think it Is In our power 
to Interest you, and T promise you that we 
will at least make an honest try." 

David Blsphnni produced, nt the Prince of 
Wales, on Wednesday, a new light romantic 
opera, "The "Vicar of Wakelleld, founded on 
Goldsmith's novel. The lyrics were written 
by Laurence Ilottsannn, nnd the music com- 

fioscd by Lisa Lehmann, and tbe cast was 
teaded by Mr. lilsplmm and Isabel Jay. Tbe 
first performance met with tbe approval of 
n largo nnd select audience, and the patron- 
nge since the opening night hns been, very 
satisfactory. 

Rehearsals are well underway for tbe new 
I'.dnn May' ahow, "Nelly Neal." and Joe 
Coyne, who, by the way, Is to be the Juve- 
nile lead, hna been in London for the past 
week. In addition to Miss May and Mr.

llobb llarwood, Akennan Jdny, Frank Walsh, 
Kitty Gordon, Mollle Lowell. Mary Brougb, 
Gertrude Lester, Jane May, Gertrude Thorn- 
ton and Gerty Latch ford. Mr. Frohman 
hopes to have the production ready by tbe 
end of the month. 
After April IS the Adelphl will be occu- 

riied by the Berlin "Komlsche Oper," meaa- 
ng a German company, for the presenta- 
tion of light opera, whose latest success has 
been made In Offenbach's "Lea Contea 
D'ilohTmanii." They hope to fill their six 
weeks* London season with this show. The 
manager. Ilaus tlregor, brings with him about 
one hundred, principals and chorus. 

Early In (ha New Year Ellen Terry will

Mr. Frohmaii. Miss Terry li due to open at

When "The Bondman," which recently 
closed n successful season at Drury Lane, 
Is revived by Otto Stuart, at tbe Adelphl, 
on Jan. B, several new faces sill be seen 
In the cast. Neither Fatrlck Campbell nor 
Henry Alnley will be available for the Adel- 
phl production, and the place of Henry Ala-

P. RICHARDS (Caricaturist). 

Eighteen months ago, Tua New York 
Cui'i'KR started Us "funny page," constat- 
ing of a comic review of tbe weekly attrac- 
tions, and secured for this purpose the ex- 
clusive services of P. Richards, the moat con* 
versant cartoon-lst la the theatrical profes- 
sion that could be obtained. 

This new departure of Tub Clipper was 
considerably commented upon, as heretofore 
no theatrical paper had ever attempted to 
publish more than an occasional halftone of 
the foremost members of the profession, and 
the entailed expense waa such that there 
seemed little chance of Its bringing adequate 
returns. 

Within a comparatively short time after 
Its first appearance, this page attained a 
popularity which by far exceeded all expec- 
tations, and Tub Clipper is receiving com- 
plimentary letters by every mail from con- 
temporaries, tbe profession and tbe general 
public. Tbe main reason for the success of 
The Cmpi'er cartoons lies In the fact that 
besides their highly artistic merit, perfect 
fairness and Independence from tbe advertis- 
ing columns have been strictly adhered to, 
and. as tbe veteran showman, J. Austin 
Fynes, expresses himself in a recent letter : 
"The touch of caricature Is kindly and the 
work la distinguished by Its fine humor with- 
out taint of aarcasm — well worthy of Rich- 
ards' clever pencil." 

Commencing with this Issue -there will be 
an additional feature Inaugurated in connec- 
tion with this page by adopting the old and 
ever popular figure of "Patsy Bolivar," ac- 
companied by Mr. Richards* original creation, 
"Clip and Flip" (bis grotesque animal as- 
sistants), which hare been part of hla trade- 
mark for the past sixteen years. 

Mr. Richards, through Patsy Bolivar, 
will review plays plctorlally, exploit many 
of Patsy's adventures ana mishaps, and 
interview theatrical celebrities on behalf of 
this nnper, and we trust that his funny Bay- 
ing* anil grotesque antics will tend to make 
the humorous page even more Interesting 
than before. 

The New York Clipper has also decided 
to start Patsy Bolivar on an extended Euro- 
pean tour next April, visiting all of tbe large 
cities and sending In bis views and expe- 
riences from week to week, which will un- 
doubtedly furnish unlimited material for Mr, 
Richards' humorous pen. 



was celebrated on Tuesday last, and tbe 
packed house saw one of the best shows 
seen In this city In many a day. Among 
ibose who appeared were: Michael Hreham, 
Gordon Brooks Trio, Cavatll, Cblrgwin, Hay- 
den Coffin, Margaret Cooper, Kate Cutler, 
Alexandria Dflgmar, D'Arc's Marionettes,

Clarice Mcyne, tbe McNaughtons. Les Mo* 
Irsso, Victoria, Monks, Henry Neville, the 
Palace Girls, Alice Pierce, Arthur Playfnir, 
Arthur Trlnce, Nell Itlchardson, Little Ticfa, 
PrlnceBB Trlxlc and soma new bioscope pic-

thirty, and the final curtain was lowered 
shortly after twelve. 

Newell nod Ntblo, who lately returned 
from South Africa, have been very fortunate 
In securing Immediate booking. They open 
nt the Moss ft Stoii house In Birmingham on 
Uondav next. They also bad an offer for 
the Ba'rrnstord house In tbe same town, but 
decided on the house mentioned. 

A mysterious purchaser, whose Identity 
still remains unknown, yesterday purchased 
tbe Lyeeum Theatre for £119,500. The sale 
took place at tbe Mart, Tokenbouse Yard, 
where for the second time the theatre was 
put up at auction. Tbe auctioneer, Broug- 
ham Glasipr, spoke .it length on the possibil- 
ities and value of tbe place, but, although 
lie casually referred to the theatre's "great 
and glorious past." he never once mentioned 
the name of Irving. The first bid was of 
C IOO.OOO. Then tbe bidding rose by £5,000 
to (115,000. and then by thousands to 
Lllit.MO. One more bid of £500 followed, 
and at £110,r»0O cbe hammer fell. The auc- 
tioneer refused to divulge the name of the 
purchaser, aiming that it was to remain a 
secret at present 

The question of the hour In the local mu- 
sic hall world Is the dispute between Walter 
'ribbons and the Variety Artists' Federation. 
The Federation has asked for a general re- 
vision of Mr. Gibbons' contracts, which are 
complained of as Ming unfair and unduly 
onerous. In thU demand tbe general sec- 



retary and executive of the federation are 
now strengthened by a unanimous resolution, 
passed at a mass meeting of tbe performers 
held st tbe Horns, KennTngton, last Bandar 
night. Mr. Gibbons announced that he will 
close the Hippodrome, Brixton, to-nlgbt. The 
closing of tbe house will probably involve 
serious legal difficulties. 

Hill and Whltaker canceled their engage- 
ment at the Pavilion s week ago because of

bocker Stock Co.. supporting the Sisters 
McConnell and Billy Walsh. 

Swbrlt-Shipuan Koteb. — Roselle Knott, 
In "The Duchess of Devonshire," pleased 
Canadian audiences so much that a return 
date wns played at Toronto within twenty- 
one days, to capacity audiences, and the one 
night Btand with Canadians guaranteed the 
attraction for a second visit. This la dis- 
tinctly unusual, and proves the value of the 
vehicle Miss Knott's manager, Ernest Ship- 
man, has selected for ber for next coming 
Geason. During the second week of "The 
Duchesj of Devonshire" engagement In To- 
ronto, Miss Knott and the company called 
Mr. Shlpman, the general manager of the 
Sweely-shipman Co.'s attractions, behind 
the scenes, and presented him with an Alaska 
sabel fur Hoed overcoat, in token of their 
appreciation of bis untiring efforts on behalf 
of "The Duchess of Devonshire" Co. 

Notes fboh "The Bubolas and the 
Waif" Co., Shaw & Gallagher's.— Our com- 
pany was never In better condition, and the 
piece makes good to the last line. North 
Dakota 1b certainly tbe limit on railroad ac- 
commodations^ — many trains twenty-four to 
thlrty-slx hours late, and branches tied op 
for a week it a time. We lost two nights 
In six weeks, and got satisfactory money, 
which helps some. Marie Young Is the talk 
of the territory, and good as "North Dakota 
wheat in tbe mill." That's what they tell 
us. 

Harxy La Mack, In advance of the "Uncle 
Josh Spruceby" Co. (Western), writes: "We 
are doing a nice business. During tbe floods 
tn Washington we were the only company 
tbat didn't lose a night. With the 'dope suit' 
and long bandied brush, and paper under my 
arm, taking boat rides, we managed to make 
all towns. The Western country Is great for 
business, but sn agent must be able to post 
paper In case of a flood or landslide." 

WlLDLR SlUONDS AND I.OLTSE ROBINSON, 

who have been featured in "Peaceful Valley" 
this season, cloeed with tbat company In Oil 
City, Dec. 0. Next season they are to be 
featured with George Verbeck'a production 
of "Near the Throne," 

Noras roou the Americans. — We are In 
our eighteenth week, and the show sets a 
new standard In eacb city we play. With 
special scenery and light effects, such plays 
as "The Msn o'Wars Man," "The Voice of 
Nature." "Trinity Chimes," "Romance of 
Oklahoma," "Satan's Imp," "A Game of 
Hearts*' and "East Lynne" cannot fall to 
please, when presented by such a capable 
cast as the Americans present Our prin- 
cipal leads have been strengthened by the 
addition of Thomas B. Alexander and Maud 
Ulalr. Our roster Includes : Arthur E. 
Herbat, manager: Arthur Seedbnm, agent; 
Henry Testa, Jack Warburton, Prince El- 
wood, Kaston ErnBt, Thos. B. Alexander. 
Otis Arbuckle. Franklin Howland, Edward 
Arthur, Jim Hobbs, Julius Olnhauser, Maud 
Blair, Ethel Townsend, Nancy Boyer and 
Madeline Hartford. At Clinton, 111., Dec. 
12, our comedian. Jack Warburton, was pre- 
sented with a handsome watch' charm by tbe 
Eagles of that city. 

^.Kiily Walsh, who has been starring 
under the management of Uoyt & Levey, will 
close his engagement with tbat Arm, and 
will open Jan. 10, under the management of 
W. A. Tulley, In the title part of 'TThe King 
of Tramps/ Mr. Walsh will be surrounded 
by a capable company. Including a band and 
orchestra. The tour Is booked solid, and a 
prosperous season Is anticipated. 

"Paniianolk 1'irns," Geo. McManus' mu- 
sical comedy, has be^n purchased by William 
Garen, manager of liavlln's Theatre. St. 
Louis, tor many years. The piece will be 
ready for presentation next year, and Mr, 
Garen will endeavor to open the season at 
liavlln's with the play. A new hook, am 
gome music, will h? written for the v' ■■'-- 
before It takes tbe road. Mr. Garen state* 
that while the play will be original In every 
respect, the general atmosphere will be « 
little on the order of "McFadden's Flats. 
The new play will be booked by Stair st 
Ilavlln, Abe Levy, now with Williams at". 
Walker, is a partner with Mr. Garen In hi" 
new venture. Mr. Levy will look. after the 
business Interests of the play, Mr. Garen act-

Harbv T. Winshan, who was connect etj 
with the firm of Spears & Meek, and part o. 
the season as manoger of "The Irish rawn | 
brokers 1 ' Co.. has retired from the latter, and 
Is now with A. H. Woods* forces, as mana-

\ns of the down town theatres Christmas 
nla-lit allowed that the majority were entirely 
*old ou: before the rise of the curtain, and 
the others put up the "house cold out" sign 
shortly after. The matinee performance* 
were all of good she, aud in some Instances 
the house was sold out. The only house not 
giving a Christmas matinee was the Illinois,

la the outlying districts were packed to the 
doors, and nil the arcades and catch-penny 
theatres were obliged to turn awny nickels.

for the two performances of P<ew Y' ear's liny.

too pleastint to permit of the business ex- 
pected nt the matinees, as the air was brac- 
ing, with hardly n cloud in the sky, and

SrDNBT, Nov. 20. 

AH theatre* and balls here are in full 
awing, with the following performances: 

At tha Town Hall, Amy Snerwln's concerts, 
assisted by Clement Harvey and Arnold 
Oange: at Her Majesty's Theatre tbe Ameri- 
can drama, "The Virginian," with a fine cast, 
headed by Charles Waldron and Ola Humph- 
rey ; at the Theatre Royal, "Lights o' Lon- 
don;" at tbe Palace Theatre, "The Little 
Stranger:" at tbe Pavilion, Manly, "The 
Coming Man ;" at the Royal Standard The- 
atre, Harry Clay's Variety and Sunday Show ; 
at the Lyceum Hall, Edison's popular pic- 
tures; at the Uaymarket Hippodrome, Cole's 
Bohemian Co., In "For the Term of Ills 
Natural Life." 

The new people at Harry Rlckards* Tlvoll 
Theatre are Stewart and Lorraine, who con- 
tribute a bright musical turn of considerable 
merit. Tbe stage is occupied the greater 
portion of the time by Hiss Lorraine, her 
partner, Stewart, assisting In the instru- 
mental items. Miss Lorraine baa a light so- 
prano voice, sod she glvei expression to her 
noies clearly and sweetly. The pair perform 
on a number of quaint Instruments of tho 
bell-toned type, and tbe effect Is musically 
pretty. They also give mandolin and banjo 
selections, and conclude an enjoyable turn 
by playing upon tbelr aluminum harp. The

ROSD STAIIL, 
Who, In a single night, established her- 
self aa a Broadway star of no mean magni- 
tude, was previously little known to New 
York theatregoers. She occupies the unique 
position of in American actress who Is a 
firm favorite with the theatregolog public of 
Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and London. 
Her popularity In these cities waa accom- 
plished through her appearance as a vaude- 
ville star In a one act comedy of atage life, 
which served as an Inspiration for her pres- 
ent starring vehicle, r 'The Chorus Lady." 
Her characterisation of a typical chorus girl 
won for her an amount of critical considera- 
tion rarely bestowed upon a vaudeville head- 
liner. After her auccesa In this country, 
she was engaged by Alfred Butt, tbe manager 
of the Palace Theatre, London, Gog., to ap- 
pear there for a limited engagement of four 
weeks, which, owing to her success, was 
twice extended. In London abe won the 
caption "The Bernhardt of tbe Halls." II. 
Hamilton Fyfe, successor to Clement Scott, 
describing her appearance at tbe Palace, 
said : "No better acting has been seen In 
London for a very long time," and added that 
she had made the most remarkable success of 
any American actress who had visited Lon- 
don. Ptlor to her appearance In vaudeville 
Miss Stalil had starred In "An American 
Gentlemin," and she followed Mary Manner- 
Ing In the title part of "Janice Merldlth." 
To Judge from the favor with which Miss 
Binhl Is being received at tbe Ilackett The- 
atre, In "The Chorus Lady," It Is likely that 
she will rsnk among tbe first favorites of the 
New York atage.

SI16E FOLK and Some times OTHERS 

BT J OSEPH I KB Ota 

There !i a clever, rood looking joong 
slDger Id tbe company now playing "It Hap- 
pened In Nordltnd," irno has three precloui 
possessions of which be li Justly proud. 
Josepti Itudd, toll joudk Englishman, mi A 
soldier Id tbe Boer War before be fluallj 
drifted on to tbe staj« and Into an Ameri- 
can production, where be la working aa 
ralthfuliy ai he fought for bla country. The 
first two of these treasures are decorations — 
one from Queen Victoria and one from King 
Edward. Both were presented ts tbe aery 
young fighter for special braTety on the 
battlefield. On one occasion Rudd carried a 
wonnded officer from tbe field under a rain 
of Boer bullets. 

Ills decoration* tbe singer carries with 
bla. But his third treasure, a big walking 
stick, whereby bangs this tale, Is left in a 
place of safety while Rudd la on the road, 
sioglng for both money and pleasure. His 
early recollections of tbe cane, however, 
were of a painful nature, as bis boyish 
pranks were therewith punished. The force 
behind tbe cane waa furnished. by his fattier, 
who followed the precept concerning the 
spoiling of tbe child by sparing tbe rod. 
This rule of enforcing parental authority la 
more adhered to by foreigners than by; Amerl* 
cans. RudJs father was obliged by- Illness 
to go about for some years by tbe aid of a 
heavy walking stick. Rudd and bla brothers 
were no different from other toys whose 
parents think they deserve a good whacking 
for the many things small boys do to annoy, 
and as tbe elder Rudd could not often get 
close enough to the youngsters to administer 
physical reproof by band, tbe far reaching 
stick waa a frequent medium. For reasons, 
tbe singer was usually the chief sufferer, 
and this Is why bis present possession of 
the cane affords him a retrospective, painful 
pleasure. 

While Rudd was serving bis country In 
South Africa, his father died. Later be sent 
for bla mother and the otben of the family 
to Join him there, Intending to remain. On 
their arrival at "the steamer dock, the family 
filed down the gang plaok— and at this point 
occurs the humor of tbe tale. His mother 
hurried towarda blm with a long package 
In her hand, eagerly stretching It forth la 
bis dliecflon, as If bestowing something 
wonderfully beneficent. Even before the 
usual greeting of a fond mother to a son, she 
thrust the lengthy package Into bla hand, 
saying ; 

"Here, my boy— here Is your dear father's 
cane, which be willed to -you just before he 
died,", and Rudd accepted the gift with 
mingled feellnga that may be better Imagined 
than described. 

A member of the profession was observed 
to occupy a back seat at a popular Broadway 
performance the other evening, where the 
box office receipts are not so big that they 
are "turning 'em away." There was some- 
thing of a disgruntled expression on the 
young man's face, though he was there by 
the courtesy of the management, and bis 
purse not lightened by tbe price of a ticket. 

With Intent to be facetious he had pre- 
sented his free pass to the equally facetious 
treasurer at the box office window, with tbe

Two stories concerning the scintillating 
comedian of the Anna Held company, Charles 
Blgetow, are being repeated among bis 
frlenda, As every one knows, the clever 
actor has a Summer home down on Long 
Island, at fit. James, where there la a big 
colony of professional people. 

In vacation time Dlgelow likes to exercise 
out doors about his pretty place, rhe story 
goes that he waa working in the garden, 
and having planned a certain amount of 
work one day, found that It would take 
longer than he had expected. Intending to 
catch the one-thirty train up to the city, 
be arranged with his wife to call him from 
bis gardening In time for It, but to let him 
work until the Inst minute. The partner 
of bla joys and sorrows warned blm of tbe 
npproacktng hour, and Bigelow started off 
towards the station. He, however, returned 
to Mrs. Bigelow unexpectedly, and ahe knew 
by bU face that he bad missed the train. 
Hepronchfully he said : 

"Why didn't you call me on time?" 

On being assured by her that she had 
followud his Instructions, be asked: 

"Which clock did you goby?" 

"Why, Charlie," was her reply, "I went 
by tko pretty watch you gave me a few 
weeks ago." 

"Ob, aplaah !" exclaimed the comedian, 
"no wonder I missed my train I bought 
that watch In Tlttsburg, and It was set by 
Pittsburg time, an hour later than New York 
time." 

t 

There's an actors' club at St. James, and 
no feminine member of tbe colony Is ad- 
mitted except on eertuln "ladles' daya." At 
This club there Is always plenty of "good 
i-hr>er" dispensed, and long Sumner evenings 
are pleasantly spent there by tbe Jovial mem- 
bers, unaccompanied by the women folk of 
their families. 

Bigelow Is a member, and late one dark 
night tbe Jolly clubstirs, Including tbe com- 
edian, broke up and betook themselves their 
several waya towards home. Tbe road by 
which Bigelow and some of his friends went, 
was In process of repair and Improvement. 
A deep, muddy ditch had been dug on either 
side of the road, consequently the convivial 
group of wayfarers wars obliged to keep In 



the middle of tbe path, and not stray into 
by ones. They were plodding along to laugh 
and song, when suddenly the comedian's 
voice arose above the chorus. 

"Great heavens!" exclaimed Bigelow, 
whose weather eye was seardtlng the dark- 
ness ahead, "get to the side of tbe road, 
boys. See that light Is the distance? It's 
an automobile headlight" 

At the warning, the acton enlckly drew 
close to the edge of tns ditch. 

"I'm going to get right Into It," exclaimed 
Bigelow, suiting tbe action to the word. 
"Come on, boys. It's safer down here — I, 
for one, don't want to be run down by an 
automobile." 

So down Into the ditch's muddy bottom 
tbe hoys clambered, and, with anxious eyes 
strained towards the light ahead, they 
stumbled along, their feet linking several 
iBcbes Into tbe mud at each step. 

"Seems to me," said Bigelow, after about 
fifteen minutes of time bad passed, "that 
pesky machine la moving mighty alow for 
an auto. It'a encouraging, though, to know 
that now I'm not so very far from home. 
I'd like pretty well to get op oat of this 
on to the road, my left leg Is half a yard 
down Into the mud, and I can hardly pull 
it out" 

"For God's sake, Bigelow, keep to tbe 
ditch," exclaimed one of his companions, 
"you'll be run over." 

And tbe mud-bespattered party kept to 
the ditch, plodding painfully along, until 
Anally they came close to the portentlons 
light. 

"It's on me, boys 1" said Bigelow an In- 
stant later, on discovering that It was a 
lantern which Ms thoughtful wife bad bung 
out close to the road for the guidance of 
her spouse.

At one of the towns where a musical 
comedy was showing, the director waa having 
an ODususlly difficult time rehearsing tbe 
local ci chest ra. Most of his worry was 
over the double bass, who was a better 
barber than he was a musician, and ought 
to have been sharpening razors Instead of 
sharpening tones that should have been flat 

In one of the musical numbers was a 
frequent low Q-sharp, which the barber- 
double bass always failed to reach, and 
which, to the ear of the hearer, sounded 
(rightfully off the pitch. Finally, after 
hearing It for the twentieth time, the dis- 
tracted director exclaimed : 

"Why In heaven's name don't you take 
that A-flat as It's written 1" 

"I'm gettln' as close to It as I can," 
apologetically said tbe barber. "Ton see, 
my double bass' has only three strings, the 
lowest, A, and I'm glvln' yon the best Imita- 
tion on It of an A-flat that I can," 

A musician will easily understand tbe ex- 
planation. 

An actual Incident: 

An old lady accompanied, her daughter to 
a show which Included that erstwhile popu- 
lar freak, Mile. Christine, the colored two- 
headed girl. 

"Dear me!" exclaimed tbe daughter pity- 
Ingly, "Isn't It an uncomfortable condition 
for that poor creature." e 

"Oh, I don't know about that," consolingly 
replied tbe old lady, "they must he great 
company for each other."

Dnc. 22. 

The theatrical patronage has been a bit 
off this week, owing to the usual Christmas 
preparations, etc., but still the let-up has 
not been as steep as one would expect this 
BeaBon of tbe year. In fact, It may be said 
that the London programme of OarlBtnas 
amusementB commenced on Tuesday last, 
with the revival of "l'eter 1'an," one of the 
prize winners of Christmas plays, and from 
now on every day will see some fresh Item 
added to the fare at theatres, music halls. 
and other entertainment hi the West End 
of London and suburbs. One of the chief 
events of the pantomime world will, of 
course, be the opening of Drury Lane The- 
atre, on Dec 2tt, with the pantomime of 
"Slndbad," In which a star cast of comedians 
will appear, supported by a company rum- 
bcrlng several hundreds In tbe chorus, ballet 
and spectacles. This "Slndbad" show, how- 
ever, Is only one of the many good things 
offered to the London playgoers during this 
Joyous season, and I will mention some of 
the others later on. 

At the "Royalty, a few nights ago, was 
presented, for tbe llrst time, a modem, four 
act play, entitled "On tbe Side of the 
Angels," by W. L. Courtney. Major Ralph 
Hawthorne, a man of weak heart, but strong, 
character. Is the principal character of tbe 
play. He drinks, be Is a slave to cocaine, 
and he has wronged a simple country girl, 
who nursed him through a severe sickness. 
In earlier life he haa been very Intimate 
with a Lady Rolleeton. Then he swoons. 
The country girl, now a professional nurse, 
comes to the rescue a second time, and 
eventually tbe angel wins. Very greet in- 
terest waa taken In the production, many 
leading members of the theatrical profes- 
sion being present Every name in the cast 
was familiar to lovers of fine acting. The 
plajers were: Norman McKlnnell, Mies Gran- 
ville, Arthur Playfalr, A. Tare Tempest, 
Lillian Braltbwalte and Florence Haydon. 
The play waa done by the "Pioneers," a 
society which prides Itself on putting on 
plays of the non-cranky order. 

raul Ruben's new play, "atlas Book snd 
Holland," now in rehearsal, wilt be put on 
nt a local theatre early next month. In 
the cast are: Q. P. Huntley, Herbert Clay- 
ton, U. 8. Foster, George Barrett, Harry 
Urattsn, Morris Harvey, Ethel Cadman 
Grade Leigh, Phoebe Mercer, Gladys Ivery 
dnd Eva Wei ley. 

The Qarrlck Is dark now, hut will reopen 
after tbe Christmas vacation with a matinee 
or "The Morals of Marcus" on Dec. 28. 
This will be tbe one hundred and twenty- 
fifth performance of the play. A farther 
series of the mstlncee of "Macbeth" will 
be given at the Gnrrlck early In the new 
year, when Arthur Botirchler and Violet Van- 
[troiigh return from their holiday on tbe 
continent. 

In the future, George Edwardes has ar- 
ranged that he will retain all the provincial 
rights of bla own London productions, "The 
Mervellleuiea" opens at the Lyceum, Edin- 
burgh, for four weeks on Monday next ; 
••See-See" starts the same time st tbe King's, 



Pinkie," he had a talk 



Comedle Francalse, M. de Feraady com- 
mences the second act of 'Pollche' with a 
very pretty piece of emotion, addressed to a 
very be-rlbboned King Charles: at the Gym- 
nase.a 'Ittle white dog, called Prince of Wales, 
serves as a confidant for Mine. Msrtbe lie- 
guler, and at the Varieties, In 'Ulquette et 
aa Mere,' It la a black poodle to which 
Mile. Lavalllere confesses tbe name of the 
man she loves." The dog, a dramatic author 
Informed The Figaro, la going to replace the 
conventional confidant of modem comedy. 
One can tell him naturally tbe state of mind 
one needs to convey to the public He re- 
places the girl friend In the convent, the old 
family servant, and tbe college friend. He 
la a discreet confessor. In a word, he Is a 
blessing as a means of common I cation with 
tbe audience. In the London theatres at 
tbe present moment the only dogs appearing 
In a play are at the Lyric, In "Robin Hood, 
and they hsve nothing more aerlous to do 
than walk on and off. Last March, how- 
ever, at the same theatre. In a one act play, 
8am Sotlern had to address the whole of 
the dialogue to a dog. Tbe piece was called 
"What Shall I 8sy to Her? n and the Ques- 
tion wan addressed to a terrier. In "The 
Light that Failed," which was also produced 
at the Lyric, a dog played a little part In 
"Richard II," Beerbohm Tree had no words 
for tbe wolfhound that followed him, hot 
about eight years ago, I am told, when he 
staged 'Ttlp Van 
with blx dog, Nick. 

George Alexander has acquired the English 
rights of "Le Voleur," a new play, by Henri 
Bernstein, which has Just been produced at 
the Paris Renaissance with great success. 
Mr. Alexander haa commissioned Cosmo 
Gordon Lennox to prepare an English version 
of tbe work. Its production, however, can- 
not be expected In any near future, as "His 
House In Order" Is still testing the capacity 
of St James', and the succeeding play Is to 
be tbe work of Alfred Sutro. "Le voleur'' 
Is said to be a strongly dramatic plsy, the 
action of which turns on a theft by a woman. 
Her husband unsuspectingly employs a de- 
tective to Investigate the crime, and there 
la a powerful scene, in which he wrings from 
his wife a confession of her guilt. 

A few days ago, at a special meeting given 
at Terry's, was presented a new end orig- 
inal three act play, the work of Frank King- 
ston, and titled "Tbe Wehsters." Theplece 
dealt with the fortunes and misfortunes of a 
young gentleman named Frank Webster, who, 
according to bis own account, came of a 
family that never broke Its word. The ex)- 

Sendee of the plot necessitated several wide 
eparturcs from tbe proud beast ; for Frank 
had a brother whose name was Douglas, and 
who was ready to break anything that would 
serve his purpose, even to tbe extent of tbe 
whole of the Ten Conftnandmeuts. Frank 
suffered considerably both In reputation and 
fortune by the wicked doings of 'his brother, 
but be wss brave and patient, and be was 
good enough and selfish enough to Inform 
his beloved one, Leonle de Fernandez, that 
he would never link her name with bis In 
matrimony until his honor had been re-estab- 
lished In the eyes of the world. Thereupon 
Frank Webster went into cheap lodgings 
and devoted himself to tbe writing of a play. 
He pawned his coat to provide pens and 
Ink and paper, snd In the end he same 
through his troubles to the satisfaction of 
all, marrying his Leonle, and all the other 
happy thfngB always to be found at the end 
of a plsy. 

Mr. and Mrs. Kendal have secured a new 
play, a three act comedy, with a romantic 
interest, by Winifred Dolin, and will pro- 
duce same at the Boyal, Brighton, In Feb- 
ruary next. Miss Dolan bos done some 
creditable work on tbe London stage, from 
which she has now retired, and this will be 
her debut as a dramatist. 

The rtvlval of the Drury Lane pantomime, 
"Slndbad," will be given on Monday after-

Morton, adaptod from "Mademoiselle Josette,

will be transferred from the New to the Cri- 
terion. On Boxing Day afternoon Mr. Na- 
tion, the leases of Terry's, 'will present a 
pantomime, baaed on the story of "Little 
Red Hiding Hood." 

Regarding the trouble between the Variety 
Artists' Federation and Walter Gibbons, 
which has been tbe big feature tonic In tbe 
local vaudeville world, 1 must refer to my 
friend, H. O. Hlbbert'a editorial on that sub- 
ject In this week'a Issue of bis publication, 
The Jfvslo If oil. It la beaded "Peace I*' 
"Tbe Music Hall war Is at sn end. Thus the 
cucclnct statement of the non-professional 

frees. It aeems a pity that the differences 
hat have occurred between the Variety Art- 
lets' Federation and Walter Gibbons, with 
reference to the Brixton Hippodrome snd 
the Empress Brixton Empress, have been 
dignified with such an imposing title. What- 
ever may be the domestic tiffs and quarrels 
between proprietor and performer. It must 
always be remembered that both parties are 
In the entertainment business for their liv- 
ing, and each la Indispensable to tbe other. 
To suggest that there Is a war between the 
two la to invite such opposition from out- 
siders as will prove aa disastrous to perform- 
ers as it Is ruinous to proprietors. Mr. 
nibbons has. during the week, been waited 
on by a committee of the Loudon Trades 
Council, representing tbe Variety Artists' 



Federation, tbe Musicians' Union and the 
Association of Stage Employees, who Im- 
pressed blm to accept the terms agreed to 
nt Horn's Assembly Rooms on Sunday week 
last, or, by s display of boards and distri- 
bution of handbills, the public would be 
urged to refrain from supporting Mr. Gib- 
bons* music balls. The demands were (11 
payment for matinees, |2) no transfer from 
one hall to another without the consent of 
the artist, (8) no variation or time without 
the consent of tbe artist, (4) the reference 
of all dispute to a board of arbitration, (5) 
non-sloppage of commission, (8) Mr. Gib- 
bons to atop the Injunction and pay tbe 
costs, (7) no bias or prejudice to be shown 
to those who had taken part In tbe dispute. 
It is stated that Mr. Gibbons hss agreed to 
tbe non-transfer clause, and that time shou d 
not be varied to the detriment of tbe per- 
formers He agreed to withdraw the Injunc- 
tions, and pay all costs, and to the clause 
providing that no bias or prejudice sbould be 
shown to those who hsd taken part In tbe 
dispute. On the otber band, be said that 
tbe board of arbitration and tbe barring 
clanse were matters for consideration with 
otber managers, and he asked for two mat- 
inees at the Royal Holborn and other bouses. 
He did not agree to the non-sloppage of com- 
missi on a. 

Juat now most of tbe music hall per- 
formers are pantomiming. You will, 1 am

them are this Christmas. Aside from Drury

ment at the Hackney Empire, George Lagb- 
wood, who Is also playing at the Empire,

It, dashed Into an electric car coming from 
the opposite direction. The animal was In- 
stantly killed, the driver very badly Injured

he ...could have obtained In no other way. 
He rose rapidly In his line, and to-day takes 
rank among the foremost Jugglers of the 
world. He does two acts, one of which he 
confines to sensational Juggllae, and the

Acid Dentifrices 
Destroy the Teeth 

Millions of people are carelessly 
undermining their health in a way 
least suspected. The guards to the 
gateway of health are the teeth, and 
no constitution is so strong that it 
will not finally succumb to the im- 
proper mastication of food. You 
cannot properly masticate food with 
loose, sore, sensitive teeth, which 
are only some of the results of the 
use of Acid Dentifrices and those 
filled with grit and other injurious 
stuff. There is one great popular 
Alkaline Dentifrice known in all 
parts of the world, and used by dis- 
criminating people, that should be 
in constant use by professional peo- 
ple, and that is Sosodont. It makes 
strong, healthy gums and beautiful 
teeth, that guard you against many 
of the ills that come from improper 
digestion. W.e will send you a

Iloom AIM, Asklnnd Block, Chicago. 

The bolldayn Are over, and matters theat- 
rical b&ve settled dowr. to their normal form, 
with bunlnerir, generallv good. Never, In the 
drnmntlc history nf thlcngti, s« the vcnllet 
goes, was holiday business ho cood, and, with 
two or three excoptlom. the theatres turned, 
hundred* nwr.y nn Xew Year's eve, -Msny 
of the houses had sold out twp or. three 
weeks in advance, notably the Garrlck,' Colo- 
nial and tii Salle, where "The Social Whirl," 
"The Grand Mogul" and "The 'time, the 
Place and the Clr!" are running;, respec- 
tively. Three attractions absolutely new to 
local theatregoers were presented nn that 
night, viz: OtU Skinner, In "The Duel," 
ut the Grand Onem Ifauae; William Gillette, 
In "Clarice,** nt Powers*, and "Dora." at the 
Xew. the latter having Its Arm perfoetnance 
In Hngliali on any stage nt- that time. At 
both rowers' tmt'i the Grand, many wore 
turned nwny. -tines J. Curbed opened at 
the Great ' .Northern, tn "The Burglnr and 
the Lady." Sunday night. "The Girl with 
Hie Green K)'cb" wns given at the Chicago 
Opern House. Prlt2i SchelT continued to 
capacliy at the Illinois. "The Flower Girl" 
did wen a: the Studcbaker, . both . being in 
their Inst week. "In Old Kentucky" neld 
uver-at McVlckere-- Tlic Bush Temple pre- 
vented ■'Pearefnl Yaljey" Xew Year's eve, 
unil the other bonnes made their customary 
moves on .the drnmntlc checker-board. All 
honsert save special matlnecri on the holldny 
except, the Illinois, nnd certainly no year was 
ever ushered in with rucIi great prospects. 
R* far as tliirj profession, b concerned, as 
the year 1907. 

Illinois Theatrk 1 will J. Davis, maua- 
ger).— Frltxl Schcft said good-bye to her 
friends Jan. 0, having played to two weeks 
■if absolutely capnclty houses. In "Mile. Mo- 
•Uato." It Is doubtful if the HtUc singer ba» 
frleodi any-where In the country wno are 
t-taiiDcher to oer than they in here. Rthel 
Barry more will make a revival of "Captnlu. 
Jinks," 7, remaining for two weeks. 

Powebs' THR«.riuj IHirry J. Powers, mnn- 
tigeri. — Wllllnm Gillette npencd hh four 
weeks' engagement Xew Year's eve. In "Cla- 
rice." being ably supported by Marie Doro. 
Adelaide Prince. Frank Burbeck. Francifi 
Carlyle and others. The booking bids fair 
to he n prosperous one, .is the star Is a 
great favorite, loyally. 

Garkick Theatre ("Herbert C- Duce, mau- 
ngert.— "The Social Whirl" opened Its third 
nnd tiat week. 6, having played to good limi- 
ne** so fnr, nn j with every prospect of n 
continuance of it. The various songs, and 
the unique bits of business Interpolated by 
Charles J. Ross, Krederlck Bond and Eliza- 
beth Brlce together with the finely drilled 
chorus. brine forth rounds of applause night- 
ly. 'The Tourists" coines 13. for two weeks. 

Colonial T-ii:atke (George W. Lcdercr, 
manager). — "The Grand Mogul" continues 
to tinw capacity houses, and tbe perform- 
ance Is now. In smooth working order, pro* 
greasing with lots of vim. The principals 
and chorus have settled Into the work lu a 
manner which shows good training, and 
there la much Improvement over the opening 
night. The attendance Xew Year's cvo broke 
all records for the house, and this, means 
much when It is realized that George Cohan 
has made several records there with hla 
various plavs. This attraction has about 
three weeks more te run, nnd will be fol- 
lowed by Richard Carle, hi "The Spring 
Chicken.'' .->■ - 

• Studkoakgu Tiiivatrf: (it. E. Hcrmeyer, 
manager). — "The Flower Girl" closed Its 
most successful engagement luRt Saturday 
night, having entertained mnuy thousands of 
people during Its stay, and having made an 
undoubted bit. Louise Gunning can always 
be sure of a cordial welcome here, as she has 
m&de Innumerable friends, and ber work has 
been nt a blgb quality. Lena Ashwell will 
appear In "Mrs. Dane's Defense," 7,-support- 
rd by Guy Standing, mid during the engage- 
ment, which will last three weeks, she will 
r.gnui be seen hi "The Sbulamlte." ft was in 
this piece and in Chicago, cat-ly last Fall, 
that she made berJlrKt American appearance. 

UcVit'evEiiAs Thi:atrb (George C Warren, 
manager): — "In Old Kentucky" has lost none 
of* Its earning qualities, for during Its two 
weeks ii.playeu to capacity at every perform- 
ance, and mail v times peoplo .wero turned 
•sway. Evening of 4 there was .a pr.lxe buck 
and wing dance held on the stage, the chal- 
lenge going out from the members of the 
pickaninny troupe with the company, and 
the audience that night got more than Its 
monev's worth in fun, for the contestants not 
only put Rirthfeit energies into the work, but 
a lot of. fun .m tbe bargain. Keller, opened 
a week's engagement 0, being assisted In the 
I'vening's entertainment bv Paul Valadon. 
Mr. Kellar has a number of new and Inter- 
esting tricks and Illusions, notably "The 
Golduv Untterfiv," and the sleight of hand 
work of Mr. Valadon was remarkably clever. 
Xext week, Jessie Busley, In "In the Bishop's 
CarrJagc." •■ ' * - ■ ■ ■ 

Goan'u Opf.ba House (Harry Askln, man- 
ager). — James K. . Backett closed his four 
weeks* . engagement here Sunday. Dec* 30, 
instead ot 20, as had been previously an- 
nounced, and Otis Skinner opened . what 
promises to bs a highly successful, engage- 
ment 31, In 'Tho Duel." In wtiich he has 
excellent assistance from Keith Wakemao. 
Robert B. Mantcll follows, for two- weeks, 
In Shaketiiwarean repertory, opculng In "Mac- 
beth," 13. 

Great - Northern- Tiieatrb (Fred C. Eb- 
ons, manager).— James J. Corbett did a 
Hue business lust week in "The Burglar and 
the l^ady," and was greeted every night by 
salvor, of applause noon his entrance.' The 
plnv has much of Interest In a melodramatic 
foriu. and the handling of the two . well 
known charncter-i of Untiles and Sherlock 
Holmes, the former played by Mr. Corbctt 
makes It verv Interesting for the lover of 
ihe exciting. ' "Arlxonn." that sterling Amer- 
ican drama, br Augustus Thomas, Is the our- 
reut attraction, opening tt. and the audience 
on *lhnt dale were as enthusiastic over iho 
production n« others bad been in years gone 
liv. The conipanv Is n good one, and Caoby, 
lipiilon, rtoultn and the other principal char- 
acters are espwinllv well handled. Xext 
week. George Sidney. In "Busy Iziy's va- 
eailon." 

Xcw Thkatuk (Arthur A, Harper, niana- 
ner), — "jiora " haa proved quite uu Inter- 
Bttttf feature, especially, as many who go 
la see It have already seen ihe play of 
■■lilidonnu-y. which 'whs adapted from this, 
(Dora) the original. In too latter, Dora 
Is the stronger part Instead of the Countess 
y.Icka. Jno. 14. 'The Masquerade." by Lml- 
wig Fulda (first time la English In this 

CiucWflO Opbri 'Hiil-se fll. D. Hunt man- 
■jaiV — Etennnr Gordou made a great per- 
sonal hit ls»t week. In "Tlie Girl with the 
Green Eves." playing Ihe title vole in a most 
comtnendtiblo manner, and further demon- 
strating hrr eterll-iu qualities. William 
Bran, well gave «n oxcentlonally good char- 
acter bard I on of the lesdinst male role, and 
the other members were all fully equal to 
the demands made upon them. "In tbo 
Palfu-e of the King" served to introduce Kva 
Tanguay as the new leading woman of the 
company, and in the role of Dolores she 
made a mo** excellent Impression. Mr. 
Rrtuuwell, MlRf . Barrlscale. Miss Gordou. 
Miss Itelraer, John Daly Murphy and others 
all did snlcDdld work. Business Is at top 
notch right along. Next week, "When We 
Wero Twenty-on?."

Imjr Street entrance, where the admonition 
also appenrA: "Secure your seats well In nd- 
vaace. Cecil Lean has made the hit of his 
career. In the role of Johnny HUIh. nnd 
Olive Yoll runs him a close second, as Mrs. 
Talcott. "Thursday Is My Jonah Day" and 
"I Don't Like Aoiir Family" are being sung 
and whistled nil over .town, being among the 
big bits nf the play- ' 

BirBH Temple theatee (Elizabeth Scho- 
lior, manager).— ''When Knighthood Was In 
Flower" urew a succession of the biggest 
houses In the hlMory of tbe house, and proved 
the acting qualities of tbe company In a line 
way. No Utile detail was left undone, and 
from tbe leading parts to the most minor 
role. It was a tine performance, reflecting 
great credit upon the management iiefore and 
behind tbe curtain. "Peaceful Valley" opened 
for a week, Dec. 31, and found favor In 
many eyes with its homelv humor and patbos. 
The members found It a relief, after tbe 
strenuous work of the preceding week, and 
bufilnebs held up welt "A Contented Woman" 
Jan.. 7 nnd week. ."ItifDcs" 14. 

iNIKIiNATtONAL THEATRE (EUlS F. GHck-

Interrupted Wedding" 0, "The Gypsy Baron" 
10-13. "The Jewish Emigrant" matinees of 
VI and 13. Mr. Gllckman, as usual, appears, 
and Is heartily welcomed In all roles. Ver- 
satility is certainly one of the watchwords of 
this bouse. 

IIujiui. !,dt Thgatde (Jos. Bransky. mana- 
ger), — "Faust" drew good houses last week, 
nnd was attentively listened to. There Is a 
charm about this old German play which ap* 
peals to all classes, and serves to draw 
laughter and tears 4n the right proportion. 
"East Lynne." that wonderful stand-by. Is 
the current bill, opening 6, and, the advance 
sale already shows what the week will lie. 
This Is one of tbe dramas upon. which the 
management know they can depend to draw 
good business, especially from the feminine 
contingent. Next week, "The Man of Mys- 
tery.*' 

people's Tiieatbi; (Joseph Pilgrim, man- 
ager).— "Tbe Lady of Lyons," a play which 
is generally supposed to be for tbe higher 
priced theatres, drew fine business last week.

For week of 13, "Charley's Aunt." 

Pekin Tiipatre (Robert T. <Motts. mana- 
ger).— "The Count of No-Accouaf* has en- 
joyed good patroaage for several weeks, and

offering Now iear'3 week, and drew good 
business to this North side house.. The bill 
for the week of has not been seat at tbe 
time of "writing. 

Calcuet Theatre, South Chicago (John 
T.- Connors, manager). — "Lost River", was' a

comedians, In rang and talk, which caused 

ronsiderablc laughter; the Great Christie 



undoubtedly scoredhltu, and Mr. Collier found 
a role that gave him every scope for' bis quiet 
and unobtrusive methods of gaining laugh*. 
In, the iton wo are told that l>lck Crawford, 
modest yoiirjg hero and popular mine mana- 
ger. Is postcalied of a fear of fair women 
that amounts practically to a mania. >one 
of hla male friends can ever coax him to 
key his courage up 'to tbc point of being In* 
troduccd to a lady, but one day Dick is 
caught la a shower, and, under the, awning 
to which he flies for rescue Is, Muriel Ma- 
son, one of the fairest of the fair. Result:

chains up his, heart. Hut later on his part-

cornea to hlin with the proposition tbat he 
(Dlckl marry. Muriel Mason in order to save 
her father from ruin. Dick, hot knowing 
that the girl of the awning episode, Is -Muriel, 
refuses, and when Muriel, who thinks that 
Dick knoWH .who she is, hears of the refusal, 
Ehc accepts Maxwell out of pique. This com- 

£llcatioh Is a bad one for Dick, but eventually 
e Hnda a way out of II, and wins the lady. 
Mr. Collier made Dick Crawford a very like- 
able fellow, and (he clever lines that fell to 
bis' lot were made to count to their full 
value, George Nash, as his partner, a West- 
erner, who never lets any obstacle stand In 
the. way of bis ambition, gave a legitimately 
drawn bit of character acting that proved

met Fred with unwarrantable frequency, Tom 
believes her, but 'finally, whep he discover* 
hef lb several lies, he doubts her. This 
doubt is strengthened by the repoit of the 
detectives cmrjlo.vcd by Eve to watch M?

telegraphs to Tom that Becky is dying. This 
has the effect of bringing Tom to bis -wife, 
and upon her promise to try to speak the

will thus be seen that Mr. Fitch has used well

theatre, night -ot : Oea 31; New. Vegr'a eve. 
with an andtence present which tilled' 
every.' part this magnificent theatre. TBa' 
play w«s originally presented ut the Taylor 
Opi'rivJMuse. Trenton, K .!„' Oct. 10. llrOO; 
and. Thompson £ Dundy nro its projectors. 
It is a Toilr act play, dramatized by Wlnchell 
Smith and Byron ou'gley, from tieorge Uflrr 
MrCutcheon's celebrated book, "Brewster's 
Million!*." Nothing better In the way of, satire' 
on frentled finance has 'been seen: upon our 
stage, and It Is a play replete with life and 
action, possessing no dull moments. Erotn a 
mechanical and scenic viewpoint, Frederic 
Thompson ' and Wlnchell Smith, under whoso 
pnpervlslon the play was produced, have 
done some" remarkable things. Especially Is 
this ihe case In act three, wherein the 
illusion is so perfect that the . npectaior 
feels that he is. witnessing the reality. The 
sceaery In th(>r net, 'nnd also that of act- 
one, U particularly beautiful. In their 
dramatization of Mr. McCtttcheon's book. 
Messrs. Smith and Opglev have taken 
certain dramatic liberties, but the main 
theme la nut destroyed) The story tells of 
the efforts of Montgomery Brewster (Ed* 
ward Abelea) to spend, in one year, one mil- 
lion dollars (an inheritance from his grand- 
father), to obtain seven million dollars, 
willed under certain conditions to him by aa 
uncle. The conditions stipulate that while 
every, penny of the million must be tllsul- 
pated, he must preserve nhsoltit* secrecy In 
regard to the whole affair, one condition be- 
ing that no must form no matrimonial en- 
gagement dorine the yenr. This cnndlrlon 
(.■Hiiaes many serious complications in bin love 
affair with his Bweetheart, Margaret Gray 
("Pegcy 1 '); admirably^ plny*d by Mary Ryan. 
The in iiicul Men which the yunng man en- 
counters In disposing of his million, are car* 
rled out In a manner most novel, and the 
whole Idea of the story Is a rare and inter- 
esting oue. In- his endeavor to spend the 
money he opens a broker's office, and' em- 
ploys his friends at big salaries. He rejoices 
when stocks that 'he has purchased go down, 
but Is dismayed when the same stocks soon 
soar skyward. He bets S1,000 on a 40 to I 
selling plater in a race, and, to his dismav, 
the horse wins for him; be Is arrested r«r 
auto speeding, and a friend Intercedes with 
the court, and gets his fine remitted ; he. 
attempts to lose n fortune at Monte 
Carlo, but hard luck still pursues him, and 
he breaks the hank, so he charters a yacht 
nnd takes his friends on a cruise around the 
world.' This, during a -series of. trying situ- 
ations' and episodes,' accomplishes his task, 
and we find him in :tct four in his rooms, 
just nfter ah auction sale Of . bis effects, 
completely "broke," and nearly dead from 
the effects of his ■■terrible tnsk.'* The play 
tells a Jolly story, alropiy nod direct lv, nod 
was received by ihe big audience with dem- 
onstrations of • pleasure which augurs 
well for lis future. Iu tbe main, Mr. 
Alleles .was fully up to the requirements ot

which music .was - (.imposed ' by George II.

In New York, Monday, Dec." 31, to a good 
house. . Matilda is ah American actress, wltu

Tod Archer, to Impersonate her, while she 
disguises" herself us a cabin boy. wbo ls ! to 
serve on Sir Clayraore'a yacht. The counter- 
frit Matilda, during her visit to the yacht, 
shocks tbe assemblage, by her smoking' and 
oilier unladylike frolics, occasionally being 
cbaM-rl about the deck by the Irascible Sir 
Claymore. Delicate subjects are occasionally 
broached, when Matilda ,!* invited to tbe 
prlvat*: cabin of a young lady visitor, and 
When tbe cabin hoy Is ordered to assist the 
lord In dressing. Alfred Hickman deserves 
credit for the manner in which he ployed
